Meet Highland Park Photographer: Byron Motley

Today we’d like to introduce you to Byron Motley.

Byron, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Photography started off as a hobby for me many moons ago. It was not something I looked at as a profession until I was invited to exhibit some of my photos at a huge photography event in Croatia in 2005! I thought then, ‘well my stuff must be pretty good’! Since then, I’ve taken my photographic work more seriously and have delved into it whole-heartedly. Very proud to have had a book of my photos from Cuba recently published in a coffee-table book entitled “Embracing Cuba”! My strengths as a photographer are photographing models, actors, and travel-related photography.

Has it been a smooth road?
The struggle continues to be taken seriously as a photographer and obtaining an agent. Even as a published author and photographer with a book by a major publisher, finding the perfect marriage with an agent continues to be a hurdle, but I keep the faith the right one will come along!

    Byron Motley is unbelievably talented. His new book is gorgeous and full of great information about Cuba. I am using it as a gift for friends and always gets a lot of compliments. We are thinking of taking a trip with Byron to Cuba because of his knowledge of the island. Can’t wait!

    Byron has special talents not only in photography, but also as an entertainer. I first met him by accident many years ago and we continue to stay in touch. I have always bought his coffee table books in advance. If one wants to travel to Cuba, Byron has a remarkable understanding and knowledge of the people, culture, arts.
